The Bush administration is pushing to take control of the promotions of military lawyers, escalating a conflict over the independence of uniformed attorneys who have repeatedly raised objections to the White House’s policies toward prisoners in the war on terrorism. The Boston Globe
The fascist approach to governing the American public remains the underlying philosophy of Bush “The Torturer” and his minions. This is hardly the politics of the Republican party I grew up with. Where the hell did these people learn to think like this? Certainly they did not acquire this evil mind set in the liberal educational system that conservatives have been grousing about since I was a child.
My suspicion is they learned it in their religious institutions. Religious organizations are perfect examples of fascism at work. They are a totally top down military hierarchy. The people in charge actually control everything. They will oust anyone within the organization that challenges their authority. In the olden days the ousted person could easily end up dead. The leaders are a bit more subtle than that these days, but the effect is largely the same.
